Top Notes For
Bob McDonald

Aromas of savoury Cherry and stemmy notes. Supple and intense - a top quality new World Pinot for sure. Mellow and reaching full maturity - Tannins resolved. Beautiful texture and easily Premier Cru standard. After a couple of hours the silky tannins are prominent. Has a future but pretty irresistible right now. One of Australia’s best Pinot Noirs IMO - definitely in the Top 5.

Lovely perfume of old fashioned dark roses and violets like a Vase of flowers from your Grandmother’s House. On palate raspberries and touch of rhubarb - red fruits in general - bright and fresh even at this age with a % of whole bunch Stalkiness with that Quartz Block minerality. Tannins are supple, smooth and persistent with moderate acids. Next in 1 to 2 years.

One of the top 5 Pinots in Australia I think. The power of the nose and palate belies its pale Burgundian colour. Plummy and spicy with incredible length. A marvellous wine. 18.
